One of the MOST vomit-inducing interviews one has ever seen.
The interview I am about to show you is one between Jon Stewart and Pervez Musharraf, el presidente of Pakistan. Ironically, it is a Huffington Post article which rightly decries the particular horrors of this man's regime. The man is a dictator who has a low regard for human rights, women's rights, and is extremely corrupt. And yet he was praised up and down on the Daily Show. Moreover, he was praised as a better leader than Bush. Jon Stewart asked if Bush was 'sleeping' or 'watching TV' when he met with Musharraf. Stewart asked condescending questions about the idiocy of Bush. Stewart then praised him as a wonderful leader, shook his hand, and smiled. What a total and complete joke. Jon Stewart has jumped the shark. I feel dirty that I have seen him in person on several occasions and shook his hand. Just...no words. Go see the vomit-inducing bit of moral equivalence for yourself!
